SUBJECT:  Priest of Isis

SYMBOL EVOCATION: Believer in Wisdom



The Coptic Christian documents found in Egypt, like the Dead Sea Scrolls found in Israel, are important in reconstructing the lost years of Jesus and give us in-depth insights into his works and his teachings. Like the Gospel of Thomas and other recently discovered documents of the Nag Hammadi Library, the Pistis Sophia is devoted entirely to the esoteric teachings of Jesus to his disciples. This ancient text presents deeper aspects of the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth and his detailed deciphering of the mysteries of the universe. These teachings for the most part give a new perspective of the four gospels of the New Testament and the Old Testament book.

The subject of this painting is a woman who was acting as my personal physical therapist in a medical facility called “The Florence Nightingale Rehabilitation Center” in New York City.  She was Polish and from Krakow.  She had a hairstyle that looked like a helmet.   Her hair was jet black so that she looked like an eight year old girl and an ancient Egyptian woman.  Any priestess of Isis would have the Bhathat would allow her to travel faster than the speed of light and thereby communicate with the Gods.
